    As you noted, the state constitutions listed don’t mention any particular god or religion. The cross, however, is a specifically Christian symbol, and I can understand why the ACLU has a problem with it.

    Unfortunately, I can’t take the ACLU too seriously, Jeff. And as I write this, I see the news where the ACLU president has been found with an atrocious collection of child porn, the story is just breaking.

    “The Supreme Court of Oregon had ruled 5 to 1 that live sex shows are permitted in that state under the freedom of expression banner. The ACLU and The Oregonian newspaper both filed briefs in favor of that ruling. But why would the ACLU do that? What’s in it for them?

    The Supreme Court has consistently ruled that states and local communities have the right to limit expression. This is the U.S. Supreme court, in a time, place, and manner, application of standards. That is, you can’t have sex on your front lawn, even if it’s a personal expression on private property. The Supreme Court realizes the Constitution requires boundaries for what Americans do. If you don’t have boundaries, you have chaos. Thus, community standards and public safety trump personal expression.

    But the ACLU doesn’t believe that. The organization has moved so far left, that now anything goes.

    • Item: The ACLU is defending the North American Man Boy Love Association, saying that although the organization champions the criminal rape of children, it has a right to do that under free expression.

    • Item: The ACLU endorses virtual child pornography and has defended the right of people to obtain real child porn.

    • Item: the ACLU opposed the Minutemen protests at the border, obviously, a legitimate form of expression.

    So it seems the ACLU cherry picks its cases. The Minutemen certainly have a right to protest the porous border situation, but the ACLU opposes that expression. — Off the chart hypocritical.

    The ACLU simply wants a different country, a nation where conduct it approves of, public sexual displays, child molestation literature is allowed. But the ACLU wants to inhibit conduct it disagrees with, like protesting the border and celebrating the birth of Jesus. That’s what’s going on.

    So let’s apply the no spin concept to this. The ACLU simply wants a different country, a nation where conduct it approves of, public sexual displays, child molestation literature is allowed. But the ACLU wants to inhibit conduct it disagrees with, like protesting the border and celebrating the birth of Jesus. That’s what’s going on.

    Now my next comments are directed at our liberal viewers. How can you support a group as nakedly, pardon the pun, radical as the ACLU? This isn’t about freedom. This is about imposing a radical secular progressive agenda on a country that has traditionally voted on public policy issues. If the live sex act initiative was put on the Oregon ballot, it’d be voted down big. Remember, Oregonians voted against gay marriage.

    So once again, the ACLU is using an activist court to undermine what the folks want. This isn’t democracy. This is judicial fascism.

    It’s also a joke. The founding fathers didn’t write the First Amendment with live sex shows in mind, OK? Everybody understand that? You can easily pervert the Constitution by saying every kind of expression is protected, but again, that would lead to chaos and conflict.

    “Talking Points” believes the 400,000 members of the ACLU should wake up and smell the totalitarianism. This organization is bent on undermining freedom, not fighting for it. And everybody should understand that.”
